“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”
“Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”

1 John 4: 1-6
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
1 Timothy 4:2
“Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”
“Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”
1 Peter 4:4
“Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:”
“The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.”
“Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.”
